Cedrus deodara 'Snow Sprite' (Himalayan Cedar)

Cedar deodara_2.jpg

This irregularly mounding, compact conifer is a graceful dwarf which sends out ivory-white new growth that turns creamy-yellow. The unique, mid-size plant develops a leader with age, but stays small and compact compared to the species.  It is best grown in part shade where the bright foliage will practically "glow in the dark". You will see it on the right as you approach the Conservatory near the top of the winter garden path. It will surely catch your eye with its silvery shimmering needles.
